Thai Traditional Medicine Post by Casey Peyton

We have arrived back in Bangkok. Yesterday we spent the day at a beach in Pattaya. It was amazing. I loved spending some time in the sun and seeing one of this country’s beautiful beaches. I really noticed how close we were to the equator because even though I was adamant about using sunscreen I still got pretty burnt. It was defiantly worth it, and I think that yesterday was one of my most enjoyable afternoons here.

Today we went to Chao Phya Abhaibhubejhr Hospital Foundation in Prachinburi. This hospital is world renowned for their use of alternative medicine. It was interesting to learn their utilization of herbal and massage therapies. I liked that they were using both traditional and modern scientific western practices in their treatment methods.

I purchased some herbal face lotion (mostly for my new sunburn) and I am excited to see how it works out.

Tomorrow we are debriefing, and we will be having our farewell lunch/dinner. Saturday will be a free day and then we will be heading home. So, until I see you all again, be safe and I miss you very much.
